Imagine a campfire! Envision sitting around the bright flames with your friends and family singing songs out in the great expanse. Imagine that those melodies you sing stir up joy, hope, and belief in the great wonders of the world. Melodies have connected different kinds of people for many, many years. Music brings us closer, and music makes any occasion more festive and memorable. This book was written to promote the love of old folk melodies, provide processional music for special celebrations, and to include players of all levels. Music educators will find that there are many possibilities and combinations for practice and performance. Includes a 16-page pull-out section of twelve selected pieces for an optional cello part.
It is my great hope that music students, families, and educators will all enjoy this very special collection of Beautiful Melodies from Around the World.
